PS3 won't accept certain disks. A few disks i have won't play in my ps3. it happens to both blu-ray movies and games, and it seems to only happen with blu ray disks. i'll put the disk in, and...


Hello
The noise is actually a product of dust from a blue ray disc.Over time these discs heat up and leave a residue on the blue ray lens.
Try using a lens cleaner to remove dirt and clean lens.
Also i read an article that using a wireless controler can also cause freezing of the blue ray.

My ps3 slim won't play games and blue ray disk but I can still play eve movies on it, please help want to try an fix if before nhl 12 hits the stores.


Hi, It sounds like there's an error with the laser that reads blu ray media as PS3 games and blu ray movies are both stored on blu ray disks which is read by a different type of laser then a dvd is read by. There's nothing you could do to fix that on your own, the only fix I've heard of is sending it in to Sony.

Most games will not play but when they do it freezes after 10 minutes into the game! My concel no longer playes movies, too! Thank you for any help!!


my only suggestion would be to clean the laser lens for the disk reading, you can do that with a special console clean disk that has brushes on the botom, you can get one of these cheap online or at radio shack, i included a link to one on amazon, hope this helps

My PS3 will not read/load a game or movie. it comes on and everything but will not read the disk.



This is a problem occurring in all the play station 3 consoles....... this is mainly because of the poor quality of the disc.....as a result it leads to the damage of ur PS3 lens..............use good original discs........the heating effect is due to the long usage of pirated discs ...
check your lens if its working good then better download this Repair Guide for further information .........

PS3 not reading discs ,,


If the PS3 is not reading disc, it probably would the lens that is stuffed. Formatting the harddisk will not help.

First off, I suggest you start off by cleaning the lens. Get an good blueray lens cleaner from the shop and run it in PS3 and see if it works after the cleaner.

If its still not working at this stage and you still have warranty, send it back to sony to get it fixed. If no warranty, continue on.

Take a look at the video below for cleaning the lens as well.

Lastly if everything fails, get a new lens and replace.

The reason I am suggesting the lens is you are watching movie everynight on it and the lens is always in heavy use. just normal wear and tear.

Please rate this if it fixes your issue. Thanks.

Replace the lens unit (KES-400 AAA).
For fflam , it sounds like the youd disk mechanism is misaligned.
Try to find a unit of ebay that is has a defective lens and replace it with your lens.
